Long time planted tank keeper and tropical fish breeder. What others have said about the local water is accurate. Your plants will do fine. However, you will need RO if you ever need to spawn fish from the Amazon or Congo Basins as TDS in tap water here is too high.
LFS scene is less than optimal, and you will be better served making contacts with local breeders and growers.
If you love the outdoors and sunshine, you should enjoy living in the Front Range area.
